I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

¡NO MORE BULLIES: GO PURPLE FOR #SPIRITDAY!

“Spirit Day was started by a high school student in 2010 as a way to prevent bullying and show support for LGBT youth. Roughly eight out of 10 LGBT students experience harassment while at schools and as many as 63 percent of them report they also feel unsafe, according to GLAAD. The event takes place annually on every third Thursday in October.”
Have you got the spirit? Then put your Purple where your heart is!
Are you wearing your Spirit Day purple?

Going purple is easy:
1.   Wear something purple today - whether it's a purple scarf, purple tie, or an entirely purple outfit, you'll be taking a stand
against bullying!
2.   Head over to www.glaad.org/spiritday to turn your Facebook and Twitter profile pics purple right now to show LGBT youth you support them.
3.   Share your photos with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Google+ with the hashtag #SpiritDay - some may even be featured on the Spirit Day website.

With your help, young people everywhere will be able to walk into school or turn on TV and see a sea of purple. They'll see that the world has their back, and that it's okay to be who you are.
